Event description

Description

Global Fashion Marketplace is an international business development agency supporting fashion brands to reach new international markets, we do this with our signature event Clubhouse Fashion.

This is the only event at London Fashion Week that gives global fashion brands access to the business services that are needed to successfully launch into a new international market. Clubhouse Fashion offers the unique opportunity for brands and business services alike to showcase their products services and expertise to our members and guests.


The sustainability debate: When is fast fashion good fashion?

Fashion is a growing industry worldwide with eCommerce opportunities increasing the potential of global consumption, it is said that consumers will also have more buying power and the number of potential customers is projected to grow to more than 1.2 billion by 2020.

This huge growth potential raises very crucial questions about sustainability. Do consumers really want more products or do they want more quality products that last? Is slow fashion the answer? Is it time to take a closer look at how consumers are engaging with sustainability? At Clubhouse Fashion we will be exploring these topics and more, busting some myths with our sustainability debate.

The question is should sustainability be the responsibility of the consumer?

Join us for our fashion sustainability debate with expert global panellists and learn more about how you can build sustainable practices into your fashion business.
